I made this week's selection, Chocolate Spice Quickies selected by Jessica of My Baking Heart, for TWD, as soon as this month's list came out. Since then, I have done a lot of baking and have no idea if there were any issues with this cute little cookie.
I do remember liking them and thinking, they were not particularly spicy. They were good cookies and if spice is the goal, adding a little more of the spices might make a difference. Since, we liked them, the way they turned out, I would make them, the same way.
